 Salamando Radio FAQ
Well as their Q&A gig working with Salamando's Stove, we've got the Summoners answering some pressing questions about our Video Game Music-based Radio Station, Salamando Radio. This will help you, the viewer, understand what goes on 'behind the scenes,' and possibly understand a little more what that screechy noise is, when you turn your head just so. Yeah, that one.

What the hell is Salamando Radio?

Ha ha! Salamando Radio is our online Video Game Music radio station. We broadcast using Shoutcast streaming mp3 technology, brough to you by those lovable llama-shagging losers down at Nullsoft. Fire up Winamp and connect and hey, you're set. Otherwise I'll hit you with my staff, and damn that smarts.

D00d, UR $up3r 1337! H0w d0 1 c0nn3ct?

Simple! Get Winamp, or some other shoutcast-enabled program, like RealPlayer 7. Open it, and tell it to play a URL (Location). In Winamp, this can be done by pressing Ctrl+L in the playlist window. Type in "sradio.2y.net:8000". If that somehow doesn't work for you, shift-click here, save the file, and open it in Winamp. If THAT dosn't work, check to make sure that you actually have a computer. Or mabye just kill yourself, and make more Soylent Green for everyone else.

Excessive delay! Salamando Radio is prebuffering half of my physical memory. Explain anomoly or face 'deathbot' programming.

Sometimes, if you have an advanced enough copy of WinAmp and the moon is in the eighth house, it will download Salamando Radio's entire playlist, which takes a while. However, then you can choose stream any song you want off Evk's hard drive! We don't know how and we don't know why. But that is the mystery of summoners.

Joe Hmong Archer from Murond Death City asks:
How long is the Salamando Radio playlist? Also do you know where I can get true power?

It's getting longer all the time. As of last time I checked - April 16th, 2000 - It's 98 hours. If you're low on power, I suggest you get Mega Man to shoot you with his lightning gun. Either that, or ask Dracula for TRUE POWER.

A passing bum asks:
Why do some songs have odd names ("Staff Roll")? Also, you got some spare change?

That's the way they were when Evk got them. Also it's probably the way whoever made/translated the soundtrack wrote the names down. Also, I have some gil, but I need it to buy a Holy Miter. Go take a bath. And get a real job.

Where did you get all this music? Is it illegal? If it is, can I use my Fist of Justice, Repeated Fist on you? Or possibly draw out a Bizen Boat? And do you know where I can get a Chirijiraden? Please reply! ^_^

Some of it Evk bought in CD Audio form and ripped. Some of it was contributed by kind souls. Some of it was gathered using large radio telescopes pointed at distant stars. Yet others were ripped directly from ROMS in .spc form. And yet others were invoked and written to his hard drive by Orange the Time Mage. Pretty soon a list of all albums on Salamando Radio will be posted. Also, shut up.

A freindly chinese ghost asks:
Can I contribute? Can I trade?

God yes. Get in touch with Evk via ICQ. His number is 11029633. Also, you might want to work on your complexion.

The angry spirit of Meklor writes:
I was listening to Salamando Radio and I got booted! I thought you said it was burning all night long?

It means that either Evk had to restart or he crashed, or died. Since this is rather likely, try waiting all of 10 minutes and reconnecting. If it's still not up, mabye Evk got hit with Dispose. That really hurts, you know. Just wait - it'll be back in less than five minutes, unless he forgot to ReRaise himself. Dumbass.

The angry spirit of Meklor retorts:
It's been 2 hours already, though! Why is Salamando Radio still down?

Oops! Well, one of several things could be happening. Evk's cable might be out, as his provider decides that he's not online while his modem decides he is. Either that or he might have forgotten to turn it on, the imbecile. If this is the case, you can bet he'll have a little visit from Zodiac to remind him.

A guy who just burst into our offices brandising a huge sword and looking angry yells:
Hey, this is all jumpy.

Get a faster connection. Or if you're stuck on a slow modem, then try not surfing the internet. It gets really jumpy if you have to download images from a homepage plus a 3k/s sweet, sweet VGM stream at the same time. Also, that isn't a question.

A guy who just burst into our offices brandising a huge sword and looking angry yells:
Hey man, I don't have to follow your RULES!

That isn't a question either!

A guy who just burst into our offices brandising a huge sword and looking angry yells:
Shut up!

Make me, fatty!

A guy who just burst into our offices brandising a huge sword and looking angry yells:
Fine! I will!

Hey! Who do you think you're dealing with? Take this!
Wind, fade to silence and light, give us power! Shiva!

Death song, death door, death river awaiting! Rich!

A guy who just burst into our offices brandising a huge sword and looking angry yells:

Now, to save ourselves from being predictable, take this!
Ignoble truth, descend from heaven! Screenshot!
